Wordless Wednesday – Bat-faced cuphea: A perfect plant for a monastery!

Last week I discovered this startling, cute plant when we visited Cimiez monastery and gardens, just north of Nice.

It looked like a Cuphea, so I googled that and matched it to Cuphea llavea, otherwise know as the Bat-faced cuphea

I couldn’t see it myself, until I coloured up a grey, long-eared bat for fun!

    Oh, one of my favorite little plants! I don’t currently have any growing, but they’re such fun–full of color and little bat faces.
